Probably was using a cloned FBL unit which didnt support tandems and would have been better off using a "Dyson" ball versus wheels.

High hopes indeed.
A for effort.

...and yes he survived, his ego on the other hand

Pretty good - got airborne. I would guess better than 99% of the home-made helis out there...and considering this almost a quarter century ago too, even more impressive. Good design/layout if you have limited tech.

we like to refer to that as dynamical roll over, only need three things! Pivot point, rolling motion and exceeding the critical angle. LOL

I honestly think the giant chrome steel balls he was carrying shifted to one side pulling the prototype over resulting in the crash... it was also obvious that the engine he selected, although powerful, was not enough to lift them out of ground effect.

I wonder if he had even a rudimentary control system, after looking at the machine. The little helmet wouldn't be much good if a blade nailed him in the head!

Takes a lot of balls to try something like that, I give him credit for it, I would not like the blades that close to my head.
